Pitcher plant

Phuket has brilliant amount of different plants and animals within our island.

 

Today I was walking with a friend and I saw a plant, I have never before noticed. I had ridden this road, which is only 100 meters from my home, for quite many times. 

 

The plant was one of the flycatcher family. It catches the flies and other little critters to it's bowl and get extra nutrients by doing that. 



One thing I had never noticed was that the bowl was an extension of the leaf of the plant. 

 

This one is most likely Nepenthes Gracilis
